There seems to be some unrest at the European Patent Office, where the Staff Union of the European Patent Office (SUEPO) balloted staff for strike action. The strike ballot involved 4119 out of the 6803 eligible employees. Around 90% of the votes cast were in favour of strike action.
The SUEPO website contains a letter setting out many of its positions.
Strike days have been set for 21, 24 and 25 March, and 14 to 17 April.
